Connecting families through play

At the Play Therapy Studio, we offer a safe and therapeutic space where children and caregivers can explore and express themselves through play-based therapies, in a way that is real, playful and authentic.

We engage children and caregivers in evidence-based counselling approaches, that aim to strengthen their emotional well-being, resilience, and mental health, and offer the potential for healing and growth in and out of the playroom. Through using play as the primary means of communication during therapy, caregivers and children can work on their unique needs and challenges in a way that can work for them, and at a pace that is comfortable.

We work with children and caregivers to:
